City V Sundowns: Billiat A Doubt, Rusike To Return?

Khama Billiat Could Still Be A Doubt For Mamelodi Sundowns In Their Upcoming Nedbank Cup Fixture

By Soccer Laduma - Mar 28, 2018 08:30 AM

The Nedbank Cup quarter-final showdown is edging closer, with Mamelodi Sundowns and Cape Town City fully focused on preparing their charges for the cup clash. 

City will welcome Masandawana to the Cape Town Stadium on Sunday, April 01, in the quarter-final round of the last domestic cup competition.

The Citizens will indeed be looking to claim revenge over the Brazilians after Head Coach Pitso Mosimane’s charges recently claimed a 1-0 win over City on their own home soil.

However, as Mosimane prepares for squad rotations as a hectic April schedule approaches, indications are that Sundowns could still be without the services of Khama Billiat, the Zimbabwean who is yet to make an appearance in the domestic cup competition.

Indications are that, while there has been much speculation about the player’s immediate future at the club, Billiat’s absence since February 24, this year, could just be a result of the player still nursing an injury. 

On the other hand, Head Coach Benni McCarthy could be welcoming Matthew Rusike back into the fold after the player was also nursing an injury.

There is no doubt that Rusike will immediately look to get back in finding his goalscoring abilities after it was his header to the back of the net that secured City a place in the round of 16 of the cup competition.

Now, it remains to be seen whether the abovementioned players will be available for selection, while the likes of Teko Modise, Kwanda Mngonyama and Aubrey Ngoma look to come up against their former sides.
